Description

a year ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.11; rv:46.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/46.0
Build ID: 20160502172042

Steps to reproduce:

I read the API documentation for WebExtensions > chrome.bookmarks,  https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/WebExtensions/API/bookmarks.


Actual results:

I did not find any capability to *get* or *set* bookmark Description attribute.


Expected results:

Because WebExtensions are slated to replace the Add-Ons SDK, and because bookmarks extensions which sync bookmarks require access to all bookmark attributes, either

(1) The chrome.bookmarks API implemented by WebExtensions for Firefox should contain additional functions to *get* and *set* bookmark Description, or,

(2) There should be a link to some Mozilla policy statement which publicly states that bookmark Description is obsolete and will be removed in some future version of Firefox.

There was broad approval of this API in the meeting in London and no major concerns.

Happy to raise a separate bug, however I would like the ability to get categories or tags too.

My use-case is to simplify container assignment in the future by using meta data the user has already assigned to the bookmark.
